[ applause ] and of course, you will hear and you have heard them earlier, our san francisco boys chorus, thank you, boys chorus for being here to celebrate. and then, tonight, many of you will be treated to goodies and some refreshments all donated through the world fund and their volunteers and all of the small businesses of san francisco. thank you for your wonderful donations during these holidays. said earlier, the tree of hope is our symbol of tolerance and acceptance. and i know what is on my mind, hopefully by the end of this week is that we will see more than this symbol. we will see the wishes, that this tree represents for all of us. and that will make this world, with our own decisions, with our own hands, more acceptance, more tolerance, as we wait with great anxiousness on our u.s. supreme court to exhibit their tolerance in our united states for the same-sex marriage that we all deserve.

[ applause ] , thank you. >> our celebration tonight, demonstrates our community's dedication to this hope for world peace. love, acceptance, and and i hope that we will continue to create a trusting legacy, lasting legacy here in san francisco city hall. as linda mentioned and also the mayor lee said that this is the largest tree of origami so what a beautiful tree we have. for each crane on the tree contains a wish from all over the world. i am optimistic that our hope will grow just like this tree. may we make these wishes come true by allowing the cranes to fly towards their hopes and dreams. thank you, thank you very much and now i would like to exchange cranes with mayor. >> let's hear it for them. >> i see the crowd goes every year for this event and it grows in size and diversity and you are all welcome here and the mayor would reflect those words as well. he loves seeing this diversity and we were laughing at a minute ago what a wonderful thing to have in city hall right here, one person that we forgotten to mention and a lot of this is in our program, take it home, but the tree was donated from the delancy street foundation, get your tree from them. i always try to keep an eye out for an elected officials i did see the fire chief walk in and joanne is here. thank you for being here. and now we are going to go back to our regular program because we have several people who have wishes who have spoken words they want to give to you that kind of express their take on the tree of hope. first of all, mention once before but now hear to speak to you alahandro mahe and teaches at the san francisco university and short story edit tore and award winner and here he is. >> thank you. >> you look fabulous. you remind me of my first girlfriend. only she was not as tall. but, i want to thank the mayor lee, and the mayor's office, and jeff, and world rainbow fund and all of you for the invitation to be here tonight. we are so privileged to be able to gather together in community and joy and celebration and hope while so much of the world is plunged in darkness and chaos and war and intolerance. i am honored to read a poem for you tonight. >> the last time that i tried this, i pulled out a parking ticket. i got lucky this time. in spanish, hope, is aransa. and the plural is suransa many hopes. this is esperansas, in memory of sadako. >> for mother nature, and the ocean. but the rivers and the forest. who will speak for the redwoods and the brisle cones?

>> maybe dreams, maybe wishes do come true. so, today, we are gathered here in the heart of our city, beneath a symbol of energy and life and hope for the world. you have decorated it with peace cranes and light. wishes and dreams, and most importantly your energy. and now, on behalf of the sisters of perpetual indulgence inc, we gather this energy and strength that we may send it to the nuns above and to give it to any and all that needs its strength. to release the energy of hope that this magnificent tree represents i will ask each and every one of you if you please every time you hear me say we say... you will evoke the words of harvey milk by saying as one group you got to give them hope. now please raise your hands towards the tree of hope and we say you got to give them hope. for all lgbtq young people struggling with bullies and intolerance, we say that you got to give them hope for all transgendered people fighting to live with dignity and respect. we say you got to give them hope. for all of those who seek to protect the rights of lgbtq people across the world, we say you got to give them hope. for our sick and elderly in need of a will having word, a sign of hope, we say, you got to give them hope. each of us gathered here tonight gives witness to the power of hope in our dark world. to you, we say p you got to give them hope. >> to each of us struggling with our own dark places in our hearts, we say, you got to give them hope. i asked each of you as you leave here tonight, a promise, to reach out to at least one person in your life this holiday season, and say, i love you. to give you strength to do so, we say you got to give them hope. now, i will ad lib just a little bit and also to all of those regions that have recently been affected by natural disasters the eastern sea board of the united states and japan and other places in the world we say you got to give them hope. and now, with the energy raised through or from this tree, from the energy raised in our hearts, we seal these blessings and anoint you all with a holy blessing with our love. please administer the glitter. last trouble we got in trouble with housekeeping, so we will do pretend glitter. as it spreads may your love and cheer spread, may it remain on you as long as it is needed and work its way to every part of you that needs magic and light. and now, loudly please, repeat after me. 1, joy, more joy. always joy. and continue to repeat after me, blessed be... this blessed day. tuesday, december 4th, 2012. and as sisters as we always end our blessings, repeat after me, amen, awomen, and all of the others. thank you. and have a beautiful holiday season. [ applause ] >> this is how we celebrate the holidays in san francisco, you are not in kansas any more. let's hear it for the sisters. before we go any further we have one more speaker and some of you have been siping wine, barefoot and bubblely, let's hear it for barefoot and bubblely, afterwards you will be enjoying food was donated by restaurants and asked again and again by so many organization and events and i want to recognize them with lots of enthusiasm, cafe, floor, hot cookies, bomba, garden, and paxis. i am sure that i with missed somebody and before we close out we have one speaker that impersonally looking forward to, this is going to close out the program and at the close of those programs we will do a count down and if you think that tree is pretty now, wait until you see it lit. we are honored to have a special guest tonight, isabel ayunda, the best selling author and considered to be the world's most widely read spanish language author. now there is something her novels, the house of spirit and pola and the city of beasts some of the books have been made into films and inducted into the american academy of arts and letters and received the national literature prize and awarded the literature award and also a writer and humanitarian and how appropriate to have her here, improving the lives of others around the world promoting hope and social justice, honored to have you here and your husband, william gordon, both are here tonight. she will share a message and i will her to do a short count down and i think that we will start at 82. probably ten. please join me in welcoming isabel iyenda. >> thank you, thank you, thank you. i feel like a rat compared to this lady. really, thank you for this invitation. hope, that is the key word for the year to come. not irrational, but realistic optimism, there are many good reasons to be very hopeful. it is time to put our losses and frustrations in a paper bag and burn them. they belong to the past. the new year is like a last stage where we will write our dreams and hopes. what do we hope for? not only jobs, the end of the recession, and a congress that works for a change. let's be greetier. let's hope for a better country, and a safer world. for more compassion. and let's also wish for good fortune for this, our lovely city of san francisco. at the personal level, let's hope for less stress, because the crucial event that determine our life, are beyond our control. and that and good things just happen let's not blame ourselves too harshly when things go wrong. there is usually room for a lot of mistakes and new beginnings. strength comes from overcoming obstacles. that is how we learn and never from our success. we learn from our mistakes. if we are here to end and we do all of the time we just turn around and start again. we all make foolish choices and yet we are here standing, aren't we? we san franciscoans feel entitled to good coffee and permanent happiness. [ applause ] >> i agree with the coffee. but happiness? it is over rated. there is something... there is nothing wrong with struggle, and some pain. if nothing hurts we are dead. all of this wining about the state of the world is so annoying. the world may not be good, but it is certainly better than it was before. this is why i am hopeful never before has humanity had so many resources, knowledge, power, and information. it has never been so interconnected, we are stronger and smarter and we lived longer than our grand parents. it can certainly destroy the planet but probably we will not. we will improve it. because that is what we have been doing since the stone age. we are moving forward and hear in california, we are always a step ahead of everybody else. [ applause ] >> so these are my hopes for the next few months. that we can all have meaningful life. and that we can be close to each other, and participate in our communities, and serve and volunteer. caring for others is cheaper than therapy, it makes a lot of sense and you get to meet nice people. >> i hope that we will be more joyful, creative and playful. that we will have less caution and more passion in matters of the heart. and that we will enjoy sorrowfully this crazy, and extraordinary city of san francisco. when we light this beautiful tree, let's make a wish. let's wish that all of us fall in love with life. thank you. [ applause ] >> i am going to buy one of her books now, i am telling you. >> all right, we are not starting at 82 because i want to see how that tree looks, are they ready upstairs? there is my signal. let's start with 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. happy holidays.

three wi-fi sites and i'm also joined by ros mather from ham heth and edison who did the radio frequency testing and i believe analysis that is in your packet. * i do want to put out for the commission this is a different technology, as you have not seen us deploy before. this is wi-fi technology. normally we come before you and we ask for your permission to put up macro sites which are 4 feet by 2 feet panel antennas somewhere between 9 and 12. these are wi-fi technologies, about the size of this notebook, more accurately the size of an ipad. so, the 6 you see going in the size of an ipad, the one we're asking for at 1101 fillmore is 20 inches by 7 inches. so, they're very small technology. unfortunately the nature of this technology is that it only accommodates data. it does not accommodate every single spectrum and every single technology that run on our network. so, what has happened is we have decided to place three wi-fi sites in the center of two macro sites to pull off the capacity from those macro sites that are overloaded right now to serve our customers better. there is a lot of community. there is a lot of stuff going on on the fillmore corridor. it is amazing to see, to be part of it. but it's also creating a lot of people to congregate in one spot, putting a lot of, a lot of pressure on the network. and, so, we're doing this in response to that capacity that we're seeing. we did hold community meetings. we held three separate community meetings and those are actually in your packets as the people who attended. i'm happy to have conversations with these two gentlemen and anybody else who would like to have conversations with us. we're happy to offer to go out and test his house, his deck, whatever he would like that would give him a comfort to show that the different levels of emf are in the 60 limit and b likely from the wi-fi technology different where he's at and where the antennas are. >> i would appreciate if you would make that contact with the two gentlemen who spoke. again, we hear the concerns expressed each time there is an application for at&t or verizon, but in this particular case i think there needs to be probably an extra explanation, particularly with an ever increasing use of android and iphones he is addressing, the use of wireless of people over the phone, which puts the request for overloadingon your system. i'd appreciate if you would make a special attempt to speak to these two gentlemen. * >> absolutely. i do want to let them know also that if they for some reason don't want at&t to do the testing, that the department of public health also does testing and they would just need to call the department of public health and request that. so, either way we're happy to do it and i will make contact with them. >> thank you. >> sorry, commissioners. >> commissioner sugaya? >> thank you. i thought there was something different about it because we haven't used the term wi-fi antennas before. >> exactly. >> it is a different system all together like what we have in our houses in terms of wi-fi bouncing around inside our apartments. >> exactly. if you're an at&t customer and you have a wi-fi in your house, it's very similar, very similar. >> i lost my 4g connection at 900 bush. >> we're working on that. [laughter] >> anyway, so, do you think that this kind of technology will also, then, be -- will be used more and do you know if other carriers are trying to address data issues in a similar fashion? >> you know, i can't speak for other carriers, but i do know that we have a couple of projects going on with wi-fi right now. we're working with the city to do wi-fi from embarcadaro all the way up to castro. >> whereupon, there is a change of captioners; please stand by . >> and if the data which is constant, so telephones obviously come and go depending on your calls, but the data that tends to be streaming like someone watching net flix while waiting for a bus it's extensive and broad. >> commissioners, if i may interrupt if there are three interstate items and we can call on them all. it would be great to acknowledge that in the motion. >> commissioner moore. >> we will see if the public has any other items. >> we are calling them together. >> so the motion includes nine, 10, and 11. >> second. >> great. thank you. >> on that motion to approve items nine, 10 and 11 commissioner antonini. >> aye. >> commissioner hillis. >> aye. >> commissioner moore. >> aye. >> commissioner sugaya. >> aye. >> commissioner president fong. >> aye. >> that passes commissioners unanimously five to zero. >> next item. >> commissioners that places you on item 12 at 2121 19th avenue. >> good afternoon commissioners. i am mitchiel planning staff and this is located at 2121 19th avenue and between quintara and rivera street. it's a request for conditional use permit. through at&t this facility is the regular cellular antenna facility that we see most often and antennas on the roof top and equipment within ground floor area and location preference seven site because it's residential two and the height limit is 40 feets. just a few things to add in 1997 sprint was approved for a project at the site which they were approved for antennas on a very similar office building just south to the site but the equipment wasn't installed so that expired on this particular building. there is a micro site on that building that will be removed and staff received a petition with 154 signatures opposed to the project and a couple phone calls and i am available for questions. >> any public comment on this item? calling one more time. is there any public comment on this item? seeing none the comment portion is closed. commissioner antonini. >> the reason it was point the out was the type of zoning there and there are no tall buildings. however this is the top of the hill and make it a desirable site and you have geographical limits if it's up the a higher installation and i move. >> second. >> on that motion. >> commissioner. >> aye. >> commissioner. >> aye. >> commissioner president fong. >> aye. >> so moved commissioners. that passes unanimously four to zero. that places you on item 13 at 1515 sloat boulevard. >> good afternoon president fong and commissioners want i amric crawford from department staff and this is to legalize a retail restaurant sushi avenue located in the luckies shopping center within lake shore plaza sud districts. the 120 square foot stand is located near the northern door of the store and replaces a starbucks. they began operations prior to filing the application for conditional use. the project sponsor was unaware of the requirement that they needed it when replacing another for another classification. they did not intent to circumvent the process and a stand alone building and doesn't require the permit. the project is considered a limited restaurant because of the sum of the floor area of the super market autopsied by take out food uses including a deli counter and chinese food restaurant exceeds the amount under accessory use. the department recommends approval of the project with conditions and replaces a retear limited restaurant. would not replace existing retail tenant providing goods and services to the nairvegd and limited restaurants in the district and advances the policy of the general plan. i am happy to answer any questions. thank you very much. >> thank you. is there any public comment on this item? seeing none public comment is closed. commissioners? commissioner sugaya. >> move to approve. >> second. >> with conditions. >> commissioners on that motion to approve with conditions. commissioner antonini. >> aye. >> commissioner hillis. >> aye. >> commissioner moore. >> aye. >> commissioner sugaya. >> aye. >> and commissioner president fong. >> aye. >> so moved. that passes unanimously five to zero and places you have item 14 at 1265-1267 bay street request for discretionary review. this is approved discretionary review. >> good afternoon commissioners. i am david lindsey of department staff. this is a request for discretionary review of a project that proposed to add a third dwelling unit and a horizontal addition at the building located at 1265-1267 bay street in the marina district . the subject property was is located midblock between go and frank street street and across from ft. mason and anchored by four story apartment buildings and a mix in between. the building immediately to the west is a three story building which extends deep into the lot. the building to the east is a condominium building which is 4 feet shorter in-depth than the existing subject building. the horizontal addition consists a three story component and a two story component. the three component extends beyond the subject buildings and setback 3 feet, 6 inches from the west property line and approximately 5 feet from the east property line. the two story component which includes a covered deck at the second story and open deck above extends approximately 11 feet beyond the three story component and is setback 5 feet from each side property line. the project also includes the partial infill of a light well along the east property line to allow for the installation of elevator and partial of the adjacent property but the project maintains the light well adjacent to the light well. the requester is buena shaw who represents the two owners of the condominium at the subject property 1265-1267 bay street. the concerns are the following. negative impacts on the midblock open space including shadowing and massing, negative impacts to the residents of 1265-1267 bay street including privacy, light and ventilation. concerns regarding the accuracy of the plans submitted with the subject application. in response to the dr requesters concern regarding the plan's accuracy the department planner for the case christine lamorena visited the site and found a minor discrepancy and 6-inch reduction in the three story component. the project was reviewed by the planning commission design team and found the massing to be appropriately scaled with the setbacks and transition of depth from the deeper building from the west and the shallower building to the west. the residential design team noted that the two story of the project and inhabitant space and open deck above wouldn't affect the light at the rear of their building. it is the department's position that the project complies with the planning code and with the guidelines. the project doesn't create any exceptional or extraordinary circumstances and recommends that the commission approve the project as proposed. that concludes my presentation. >> thank you. the dr requester. you have five minutes. >> i have to turn on the computer. it was off. [inaudible] thank you commissioners. my name is jeremy paul. i am here on behalf of the owners at the adjaisessent property at 1269 and 1271 bay street. i want to get what what the critical concerns are and that is the midblock open space. we can go to the overhead. show you some pictures. you see the blue arrow indicates the subject property. the property to its west projects significantly into the midblock open space as does the adjacent property, or the property on the adjacent street. you see the intrusion into the mid-block open space. this is a pretty significant protrusion into it. the residents of 1269-1271 understand this view that see from their deck is going to change significantly from this project and a project will be built and they are accepting of that, but the question is how far into the open space does this project need to go to achieve its programmatic goals? . you see the adjacent structure to the rear of the property line, and this view from this deck we expect will be closed off with any measurement of projection. you see a varied mid-block open space here. this is the view out the backyard. following -- but you can see how broke out that space is. this is adjacent to the area north waterfront park lands of ft. mason and chrissy field. these trees and green area are critical habitat which should be retrained if possible. i believe this project can expand while still protecting this space for both the wildlife and the resident was area. the resident guidelines show a block and mid-block open space pattern, the lower plate. however, the subject block is considerably more impacted than this irregular midblock shown here and this intrusion on the diagram and expanding about 24 feet creates an exceptional projection into the border of the midblock open space. there is a grouping of homes there that retain one corner of the mid-block open space, and this program can be achieved without all 24 feet being built. again from the rear of the project sponsor's property facing back you can see that the project sponsor is demonstrated this really isn't an issue about shading or shadowing, but what it is about loss of open space. the project sponsor has said that they have given a concession to the dr requester by changing their 3 feet setback to 5 feet setback. preferly the project sponsor prefer there is zero setback from the rear of the mass forward. the widening it from 3-foot to 5-foot allows windows to go in, and that's fine if that's what this property owner wants to do. the question is can this generous floor plan be achieved with a building that is 10 feet shorter? and i believe if you look at these plans and the size of the rooms proposed you can see they will be able to achieve this additional dwelling unit and still maintain the open space that this mid-block really need needs to a hailty environment for the wildlife and the city as a whole. thank you very much. you will hear from res didn'ts of the building explaining their experience there is. >> thank you. >> speakers in favor of the dr. i don't know if we have any cards. >> hi. my name is rich niece. i am co-owner of the property adjacent to the project in question here today. i am here to voice my concerns over the project. i lived and worked in san francisco for over 20 years and i love it, and some of the reasons i love it is the fact it has open space and it has great neighborhoods and for me a great neighborhood is about the quality of life it provides to the people that live and work in that neighborhood, and i do believe that the people in the neighborhood are also responsible for maintaining that quality of life, and that is really important when it comes to your neighbors because when you interact with your neighbor you have the ability to have a large positive or negative impact on that person's quality of life. living next to a rental place like this is tough and the ternover and with the owner out of town is takes time to resolve issues. we are still resolving issues with homeless people on the stairs of the property, but when i heard about the improvements of the property i was excited and improve the quality of the neighborhood. i thought there would be opportunity to talk through our concerns and find a joint solution and our neighbor to get to their goals and us to main ain our quality of life and unfortunately that hasn't happened and all i'm asking today is i come to ask to you find a solution that is bcialg to both parties and maintains the quality of life in the neighborhood. thank you very much for your time. >> thank you. any additional speakers in favor of the dr? >> hi. my name is dena shaw. i am one of the owners of the building. i lived in the city for over 20 years, and i love it here. i love the open spaces that the city provides, and i work in the arts, and nonprofit organizations. i run a business from my home. i'm a event planner and the nonprofit organizations that i serve such as the san francisco maritime association, california trout, hunter's point family and so on, so i am very passionate about the work and the local nonprofit community in san francisco. i love living here and serving san francisco. and i came to live here from london over 20 years ago i was just so excited about the uniqueness of san francisco, and how we are able to enjoy a city life as well as have great garden spaces attached to our homes. you don't get that in most big cities, so i would like you to all really consider modifications that will help enhance our lives and our neighbor's lives. thank you for your time and your support. >> thank you. >> any additional speakers in favor of the dr? >> good afternoon. i'm a little out of breath. i just got out of the hospital to be here. i am jas lynn lynnin. i am the co-owner of a home adjacent to the project in question that we're are here to dus today. i am a director of the lung transport program at ucsf medical center. i trained at harvard medical school. i came to san francisco nine years ago to -- and choose to stay in this city if you not only the job and the career and the opportunity its presented, but one of the most appealing things about my job was the city itself, and i've really truly enjoyed my experience here. i work very hard and very long hours as a transplant surgeon and under this program we have made ucsf1 of the top places. as you can imagine as a surgeon my phone and pager are on 24/7 but this schedule whatever time i have for myself or my husband we really truly consider that as a very precious time, and in this limited time when we are outside the hospital we like our neighbors like to spend time in our garden. we love to listen to the birds chip and i didn't know was possible in an urban environment and loved the sun and having living in boston and high rises i don't know that was possible in a equally cosmopolitan city like san francisco so this was one of the first things that really truly impressed me about our home, and i don't know this experience was possible like i said and san francisco is truly unique to afford that luxury for us. this past summer i was heavily recruited by harvard medical school to return there to be the director of the program but i chose to stay in san francisco and this was truly because of this unique combination of the science, arts and the culture and the urban green space which is essentially non existent in the city where i was being recruited to, and this combination is really uniquely priceless, and i hope you preserve it at all costs. the project we have here in dispute today -- i'm not objecting to the project. what i am objecting to is the scope of the project, and i think this will significantly impact our quality of life. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> thank you very much. next speaker please in support of the dr. >> good afternoon. my name is [inaudible]. i am one of the co-owners of the house adjacent to the project in question and i am here to voice my concerns. when i came to san francisco nine years ago to pursue my career as a researcher and physician at [inaudible] i was driven by the desire to live in one of the most progressive cities in the country. i think san francisco stands for innovation progress, all things smart, smartphones, smart car, so what about smart living? and i think san francisco should be all about new ideas, about efficient use of space, about urbanization, and about architecture, how to combine that with preservations and making sure that the character of the city will remain with all the green spaces -- open spaces because this is very unique. this is very precious to san francisco and sets us apart from any other city in the country and this is likely the reason we live here in san francisco because we love it. along the same lines what about i living?
